Smile pthreads

I am a new Linux pthreads user (programmer).

I am trying to ensure the installation of pthreads on my Redhat
Linux 9.0 is the full featured set for pthreads support.

I don't know much about installing and configuring Linux (viz., pthreads support).

Here's what I've run up against.

/usr/include/pthreads.h in.

I have a need to make use of attribute inheritance in new threads, mutex scheduling attributes with a priority and shared mutexes.

1) Are these attribute features supported in Linux?,

2) How do I install them from Redhat Linux 9.0, and

3) Where do I find documentation in the Linux community
listing what pthreads features and extended features
are supported by Linux.

should be in sys/unistd.h if your system and install of C knows about POSIX threading.

Plus, pthread.h is usually in /usr/include/sys/pthread.h

I've not seen a pthreads.h nor have I seen it anywhere but in sys.
Not that it means that much. But something does not sound kosher, there.

As far as I know, Linux imlementations of pthreads support mutex scheduling and inheritance; code can use values set for

Just as sort of a disclaimer - you can biff future installation of some things by opting not to install certain features on your distro.

I do not know that this is true for pthread, but I sure would be careful when installing to include kernel code support, etc.
This kind of thing cannot be done retro very easily.
